I started attending Weight Watchers over 40 yrs. ago, when I was in high school. WOW...that makes me sound really OLD! The closest meeting was 90 miles- one way! My mother and I went together. I think she was doing it more for me than for her. She didn't want me to experience life as a fat person like she had. I guess I wasn't ready back then. In my mid-20's I went back to WW, and took off 75 lb. I didn't recognize the person that I saw in the mirror. I went thru a dramatic physical change, but never really accepted my weight loss emotionally. I'd never had to deal with attention from the opposite sex, or jealousy from other women. I didn't even know how to accept a compliment. I gradually gained the weight back. It made me feel safe. Over the years I have lost 50 lb here...75 lb there, but I would always gain it back, +more, of course. I finally get it. Weight loss is not just's mental, and emotional. Even spiritual. I have all of the tools that I need here at SparkPeople, and at my WW meetings. I'm not afraid of failing. I'm not afraid of succeeding! It took me 40 years to get to this place- IT*SNEVER2LATE!!! --------------------------------- *TRIBUTE TO BETTY~* Betty Boop is a legend we grew up with and a lady with class, She can be a cowgirl or princess,quiet or sometimes full of sass.

    I forget which websites I got some of the pics. I just go to google, type in Betty Boop pictures and browse around until I find ones I like. Also, I go to places that sell Betty Boop posters or whatever, and I right click on the picture of the poster that I like and save it to My pictures. You can find a lot of stuff that way.

    hello again Sandy!
    You go to a diatition? (I can't spell to save my *** )
    I would like to but there is nothing available in my area. So do they have any good secrets or do i still have to sweat my *** off? Okay, I already know the answer, just like when i asked my gym if they could get an escalator because the stairmaster and i were fighting!!!!!! Anyway, good to hear from you. I haven't weighed in lately because i am scared to death that i have lost no weight! I have been busy, and it is hard to work out untill i have knee surgery. I wish you could call flapping my gums an aerobic excercise..........i would be a size 2!!! Anyway, let me know how it is going!
